Here, for a change, is a fish tale that actually does honor to the author. The Old Man & the Sea revived Hemingway's career, which was foundering under the weight of such postwar stinkers as Across the River & into the Trees. It also led directly to his receipt of the 1954 Nobel Prize--an award he gladly accepted, despite his earlier observation that "no son of a bitch that ever won the Nobel Prize ever wrote anything worth reading afterwards"

The Old man and the sea next years movie.
What a glorious struggle. I hope they make this into a film one day. I loved this. First Hemingway and I’m hooked like a Marlin
The Old Man And The Sea
My heart broke for Santiago as those sharks closed in. He was finally getting a shot to get back what he felt was a sense of pride and it was taken from him.
Ultimately, I was glad he wasn't taken himself but I could only admire his determination.
That says it all.
